Re: [libvirt] [PATCH 0/4]use newer video device by -device in qemu commandline

That will not work.  You must check the qemu version.  1.2+ is safe,
IIRC 1.1 will work too.

Technical background: '-device VGA' (+variants) exists for a looooooong
time, pretty much day one of the -device switch.  Actually using it did
not work though due to a nasty initialization order issue in qemu.  The
qemu memory api created by avi fixed it.
